Winner of the Scottish Grand National back in 2013, Godsmejudge pulled out for the 2014 race at the five day stage but looks a strong contender for the 2015 renewal.
Age: 9 | Weight: Unknown | Form: 5PP23- | Jockey: Unknown | Trainer: Alan King
Grand National winner in 2014 but unlikely to escape the handicappers attention this time round. That extra weight will surely tell in the races final furlongs, although a place might be within reach.
Age: 11 | Weight: Unknown | Form: F27131- | Jockey: Unknown | Trainer: Dr R. Newland
Came second in 2014 and based on that performance you’d expect him to go close again. Despite the short odds each-way punters should still see a profit if they back the King.
Age: 10 | Weight: Unknown | Form: 11112-F | Jockey: Unknown | Trainer: P. Hobbs
Ridden by A.P. McCoy in the 2014 Grand National Double Seven went close, finishing in third place. Should McCoy choose to ride him again in 2015 it would be a positive signal for punters.
Age: 8 | Weight: Unknown | Form: F1111163– | Jockey: Unknown | Trainer: M. Brassil
Unseated his jockey in 2014 but previously ran a cracker in 2013 coming third, likely to carrying less weight this time round and that will help his chances.
Age: 10 | Weight: Unknown | Form: 928U- | Jockey: Unknown | Trainer: R. Curtis
A fair way behind the leaders in 2014 but finished the race in 7th place. Difficult to see him winning it but he could sneak into the places.
Age: 9 | Weight: Unknown | Form: 34157- | Jockey: Unknown | Trainer: M. Scudamore
For many, the 2015 Grand National will be about the long-shot, that elusive 100/1 winner that will give you a bumper pay day. Statistically the average odds for a winner in the last 20 years is just over 20/1 with 13 of the 20 winners setting off at odds of 14/1 or higher.
Finding a winner in the Grand National is notoriously difficult, but not impossible. Over the race’s long history patterns and trends have emerged and these can help us find a horse which, statically, has a better chance than most.
Important factors to consider when trying to find a winning Grand National horse are – age, weight and form. Historically winners have fallen into a narrow band of statistics which should allow you, at the very least, to discount over half of the runners as potential winners. Look for horses aged between 8 – 11, carrying between 10st 5lb and 11st 3lb in weight. Horses that have perviously run at Aintree should be favoured over those with no experience.
Once you’ve eliminate the horses that don’t fit into the stats you should have a shortlist of potential winners. You can then dig deeper into the horses form and narrow your list down further using factors like jumping ability and performances over similar distances. If that sounds like too much hard work, then try our tips page where we’ve narrowed down the runners for you. Remember Paddy Power is paying up to 5 places on eachway bets, along with a FREE BET offer for new customers.
